can you use perl directly to use libexif?

as far as i know, the gimps metadata editor is not committed yet even in
cvs if it exists.  the developers have many complaints about how it
works as well.  i think it should be easier and quicker just to use perl
to do it while they sort through things and become inspired to commit
whatever things they have done so far.

at least, this was the approach i was going to take with python and my
scripting attempts ....
